Woodstock Castle came into being in 2007 when the owners decided that after 30 years of back and forth travel from Chicago to their beloved South Australia it was time to put down some permanent roots.
The name is a collaboration of viewpoints. From a personal perspective came thought of Woodstock - a place to host friends, artists, musicians and winemakers. The other view was that it was to be a home-like Castle, as in the iconic Australian movie ' The Castle'.
Nestled between two blocks of Sauvignon Blanc vines, the property is home to Kookaburras, Magpies, Lorikeets, Wood Ducks, Ibis, as well as both White and Black Cockatoos. Dusk and dawn bring the Kangaroos bounding through and you can hear the occasional Koala off in the western woodlot.
Indulge yourself with a glass of wine and a good book in the gazebo while watching the light play over the pond. Play a game of Ptanque, the famous French version of British lawn bowls. Launch the little battery boat or let the kids play in the secret garden called the Mulberry Lounge.
Walk up to the far corner and watch the sunset over the valley. As evening washes over, come in and watch a romantic movie or play a game of Charades to a roaring fire.
This country estate boasts four bedrooms and two bathrooms, a substantial outdoor entertaining patio and a kitchen that is perfect for the chefs at heart well equipped to cater for up to twenty people.
Woodstock Castle is perfectly positioned in the Adelaide Hills, a five-minute drive from Hahndorf, a German village in the heart of the hills and a famous tourist destination.
